Jamie Walker will remain a Bantam for a further year, after the club exercised an option to extend his contract until the end of the 2024/25 campaign.

Having first arrived in West Yorkshire on loan from Hearts in January 2022, Walker made the permanent switch to the University of Bradford Stadium following the conclusion of the 2021/22 season, signing an initial two-year deal with the option of a further term in the club’s favour.

He has made 82 appearances in claret and amber to date, scoring 18 times, with three goals and two assists in his final four games of the 2023/24 campaign.

On extending his stay at Valley Parade, Walker said: “I am delighted to be here for another year. Personally, last season, I felt I ended the season quite well. I am looking forward to getting back for pre-season and getting going again.

“I enjoy being here. I enjoy the big crowds, the matches, and the feel of being at a proper football club.

“My family has really settled here away from football, and I think that is a big part of being successful on the pitch. I am always open to doing stuff in the community, and I really enjoy playing for this football club.

“Hopefully, this season, I can get a full season under my belt and really help the team to kick on. The foundations are there for everyone, and hopefully we can go on and have a successful season.” 

City manager Graham Alexander added: “I am really looking forward to working with Jamie again and am sure he will strive to continue where he left off last season.

“It was so frustrating not having him available for such a significant period, but when he was fit I really enjoyed seeing what he brought to our team.

“He understands what we are trying to create, and I am sure he will continue to work hard to play a significant part in our plans.”

Jamie Walker will continue to be sponsored by The Good Estate Agency for the 2024/25 season.
